Diversity in the Workplace Essentials focuses on:
• Historical influence
• Organizational Culture
• Systemic Change
• Equity v/s Equality
A multi-perspective view of diversity and inclusion in the 21st-century workplace
Diversity in the Workplace Essentials is key to understanding how organizations can leverage and embrace talent from diverse backgrounds and create an inclusive organizational culture. For some, there is a clear correlation between the success of an organization and the diversity it embraces. For others, merely hearing the word “diversity” feels like an imposed “buzzword” that makes people antsy about how to get along at work.
Talk about diversity! This book bridges the two perceptions. It discusses the historical influence of diversity in the workplace and explains challenging concepts to broaden diversity literacy. Professionals gain deeper insight into workplace impacts that may have traditionally been overlooked, disregarded, or misunderstood.
The book does not shy away from difficult topics that many organizations encounter. Instead, it teaches that diversity and inclusion are about progress, not punishment. To recognize, respond to, and nurture diversity within individuals that often impact our workplace, we have to first understand the importance that diversity has holistically.
After reading this book, you will understand:
• The definition of DE&I
• How diversity influences the workplace
• The historical significance of diversity
• How organizations can best embrace diversity
• The difference between equity and equality
• How to leverage and embrace diverse talent
